Edmundston is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream come true no matter what kind of summer adventure you’re looking for. And while it would take a whole library to capture the rich history of the Edmundston area, there’s no better way to bring that history to life than visiting this northwestern gem.

 

 

Located at the confluence of the Saint John and Madawaska rivers, Edmundston has everything to meet the expectations of the canoe, kayak, paddleboard and hydrobike enthusiasts, even in the city. For a peaceful riverside outing in the heart of nature, the Green River and Upper Madawaska are always ready to display their beautiful nature.

 

 

For even more outdoor fun, Edmundston also has camping, golfing, hiking and cycling trails. Some of the top picks for your list are Club de golf Fraser Edmundston and the Méruimticook Trail. The Madawaska Trails network offers 60 km of single track mountain biking trails, while the Petit-Témis Cycling Trail, with softer inclines, is the perfect spot for leisurely rides. If motorized adventure is more your style, there are ATV trails aplenty weaving throughout the region. 

 

 

If you’re looking for something with a little slower pace, Edmundston also hosts the exquisite New Brunswick Botanical Garden and offers both camping and walking trails at République Provincial Park

Downtown Edmundston is a walkable touring space featuring the local arts centre, historic churches, and a built environment showing off public art and the area’s distinct culture. But, make sure you’re prepared to be sidetracked by bakeries, craft brews, delicious coffees, vegetarian delicacies, and other fantastic local food offerings.

 

 

If you want to uncover where it all started there are many historical sites to choose from within an hour’s drive of the city centre, in the Saint-Basile District and in Haut-Madawaska (Baker-Brook, Clair, Saint-François and Saint-Hilaire). A few “can’t miss” options include, Ledges Pioneers Place, the Joseph B. Michaud blacksmith shop and the 150th Anniversary Heritage Room Museum in the Village of Saint-François, and the Museum of the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph in Saint-Basile.
